    Hello everyone/ Hola a todos / Mahalo Ohana

    I'm a 29 year old hispanic male, college grad, good job, no kids, recently married. Blessed with good health and family.

    I like playing craps and people watching. I'm often pretty quiet at the tables but will high five and get excited for a good shooter. My bucket list includes making the "golden arm" wall of fame. I especially enjoy craps with a pool view.

    I like a good stickman/woman who rhymes and call's the numbers loud, back to the shooter's end.

    I fade shooters till they give me a reason to believe, no offense intended. Typically, a DC bet at table minimum every roll until it's my turn to roll. I just hate back to back fours. Not really trying to be a "wrong way bettor" I'm just a natural born cynic I guess.

    When I've got'em;
    I set the 6 and 1 to kiss before I grip and flip, usually showing all sevens. I make minimum pass line bet, place 6/8, come bet, and double odds on PL. Then I bet come odds at double. Place bets pay until 3rd time then full press.

    My longest roll was 35 minutes, 27 rolls. I was on the leaderboard for the 2017 Golden Arm tournament for about an hour, LOL. Long enough to get a picture though. Maybe I rolled longer on a cruise once, but it was late and I was drunk so no proof. I've learned that time at table does not relate to total winnings, in my cases.

    Aside from craps I love scuba diving and traveling. I would like to shoot dice in as many places as possible.

    Thrown dice in;
    USA;
    Vegas (Cal, Mirage, Flamingo pool, Nugget pool among favs, always looking for suggestions)
    Tahoe
    Reno
    Blackhawk, CO (free hot dogs at Ameristar and damn they were tasty)
    Des Plaines, IL (Rivers; great for long layovers through ORD)
    New Orleans, LA
    Biloxi, MS (wish the margaritaville was still open, love IP and nugget)


    CAN;
    Vancouver (edgewater is great place to play especially when USD > CND)

    CARIBBEAN;
    Curacao
    San Juan Puerto Rico (very fun to hear the calls and jive in english and spanish @ casino del mar)



    To do list;
    Dominican Republic
    Phillippines
    Macau
    ???


    Thanks for reading and feel free to drop me a line!

    Welcome Zach. Sounds like a decent method of play.

    The DC can be profitable, and you are playing a lot of it. I like the term favorite for all delayed decisions better than cynic, but call it what you will.

    Four numbers covered when shooting gives you a lot of potential hits, but the down side of losing four at a time does not appeal to me, especially when the wrong number shows at the wrong time.

    Regardless, if you are playing a single DC at all other times, you are entitled to some action when shooting.

    Seems like balanced play. How long have you been playing? How regularly do you play? How have things gone for you with this method of play? I'm guessing not too badly.

    Welcome to the forum, Zach.

    Rivers (Des Plaines) is the closest casino to where my wife and I live. It's a pretty good setup for craps, especially now that the casino has added a 5th craps table and the All Tall Small bonus bets. I also enjoy playing baccarat there, as Rivers is one of the few casinos in the US outside of Las Vegas that has the big tables (and quite a few of them).

    There are quite a few other casinos in Chicagoland, including 2 in Joliet (Harrah's, Hollywood), 1 in Aurora (Hollywood), 1 in Elgin (Grand Victoria), and 3 in NW Indiana (Horseshoe, Ameristar, Majestic Star). Perhaps another time you'll schedule a longer (multi-day) layover when traveling through O'Hare and have an opportunity to visit some of the other casinos in the area.

    Good luck at the tables.

    nice, you've got some chutzpah, I don't think Id want to step outdoors in vegas during august.
    hope you win some big bucks and enjoy all the young hard bodies in bikinis. That would be the only reason I venture outside while in vegas during the hot months.
